I understand and can respect one's beliefs, even those that include the concept of hell for certain people. I can respect and understand it even when you tell me about this aspect of your beliefs.
However, there has to be a sense of humility about it, IMO. If you start telling me how I better change my ways, how I better beg for forgiveness and get to know god or "else"....I find this to be more egotistical than relayed with a sense of humanity AND humility.
Isn't it about your own ego wanting so badly to strike down othes when you declare them "worthy" of your idea of hell?
Do you find there are better ways to tell others about hell? Or your god, and his/her/it's rules/tenants of living?
Of course, the ego gets in the way of most aspects of our lives LOL. Hence the thousands of problems we, as humankind, encounter on a daily basis. Our ego rules us when we allow it. It's very hard to break free of that very demanding, controlling aspect of ourselves. and just let all things "be" as they are and as they should be. Including individuals and their beliefs.
(someone touched on this in the post below, and it's something I wanted to discuss seperately from that post)

I don't go around telling people they are going to hell or they better repent.
